Today’s goodness comes courtesy of Davd Hanke from Renegades of Jazz who has a new side project called Dem JuJu Poets. This project will feature heavy dance floor jazz and afro soul on this exciting double sider of a 7″. The Agogo Records artist will be releasing this side on Matasuna Records, and it’s the first single off the forth coming long player Liberated Thoughts. If this is any indication how the full length is going to be, we are all in for some delightful African sounds here people. Forward moving to keep feet moving, “Barabara” is a horn driven side also propelled by vintage vocals and some tough as nails drums that will get the mood up in a snap of a finger. We are definitely excited by a late year end release like this (even if it’s early in the year!), good music is good music. The flip, “People’s Republic” is a heavy organ side that is just as funky as the A, but with more flute and horns. It’s a dope track, and while it’s definitely a double hitter 45, we are leaning towards this side as our fave (if we had to pick). You have a listen for yourself below and decide. Dem JuJu Poets are making authentic African music and shaking asses on dance floors all over the world. Get out there and move.
Get the record here.
